Improving Obesity Diagnosis and Treatment Through Endocrinology and Primary Care Collaboration
Date: October 31, 3 p.m. ET
This webinar is designed to equip healthcare providers with evidence-based knowledge to foster the understanding of obesity as a complex, chronic, progressive, and treatable multi-factorial, neurobehavioral disease; and provide treatment strategies, including information on the safety and effectiveness of anti-obesity medications (AOMs) as adjuncts to lifestyle modifications and bariatric procedures.
This live webinar will offer a case-based approach to:
- Destigmatize obesity to initiate and enhance patient engagement to initiate healthy weight conversation and facilitate discussions on evidence-based obesity treatments. (How to start the conversation, tips/tools)
- Manage obesity with shared decision-making, including AOM pharmacotherapy, bariatric surgery, behavior, and lifestyle interventions to achieve and maintain clinically meaningful, long-term weight loss.
- Implement strategies that lead to improved patient adherence in obesity care.
This webinar is NOT eligible for CME.
